Report: Gaffney to work out for Dolphins


Report: Gaffney to work out for Dolphins

Hard to say if this says more about the talent the Patriots had at wide receiver during training camp or the lack thereof currently in Miami.

The Dolphins will work out former Patriots wideout Jabar Gaffney today, according to multiple reports. The tryout comes on the heels of the Dolphins working out Pats castaway Donte' Stallworth last week.

Both Gaffney and Stallworth were released by New England in the first round of cuts this preseason, when the Patriots roster was trimmed from 90 players to 75.

If Gaffney were to make the Dolphins, he would very likely be their No. 1 receiver from the get-go. Miami has a talented slot receiver in Davone Bess, but after jettisoning the underwhelming Chad Johnson, they've been left with really no outside-the-numbers threat. Gaffney suffered a lower body injury during camp with the Patriots, but if he's healthy, he could be their best option there.

Last year, Gaffney had the most productive season of his career catching 68 passes for 947 yards and 5 touchdowns for the Redskins.

Patriots list nine as questionable, including Bennett, Edelman and Collins


Patriots list nine as questionable, including Bennett, Edelman and Collins

FOXBORO -- The Patriots listed nine players on their injury report after Friday's practice, deeming them all "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Steelers. 

The most notable names on the list are those of tight end Martellus Bennett, linebacker Jamie Collins and receiver Julian Edelman.

Bennett and Collins have been listed on the injury report since before last weekend's win over the Bengals. Bennett was able to play through his ankle issue, whereas Collins dealt with a hip injury that kept him out. Edelman, meanwhile, has been on the injury report since prior to New England's Week 5 win over Cleveland, but he has played in 81 percent of his team's offensive snaps over the last two weeks.

Patriots rookie linebacker Elandon Roberts, who has opened some eyes with his play over the course of the last two weeks, is also listed as questionable due to an ankle issue. Bill Belichick's club could be left thin at the linebacker level should both Roberts and Collins be at all limited, potentially leaving Barkevious Mingo, Rob Ninkovich and Shea McClellin to see more time next to Dont'a Hightower as off-the-line 'backers.
